Horror In The Supermarket

Crisis, Toilet Paper, Corona

  1. I see things are getting somewhat better over here, but I am still on high alert (i.e. I don’t wait until a crisis to shop for things I will need. However, I also don’t overstock.).

    At this point, I wonder if it’s a way for the manufacturers to gauge prices. “Look, the shelves are empty. It’s hard to keep up with demand, so we are doing x, y, z FOR YOU but that means we have to raise prices.”
